5000 things to do and I am snoozing away on the sofa. Did I say my grandmothers name is Sopha. I used to laugh about that when I was a kid that her name was the same as a sofa. A name you no longer here’. This was drawn from the parking lot when I got my hair cut the other day. At least I am drawing right?!
Two hats done and off in the mail. One more that I need to do for my dear niece who has shingles in her EYE😵😵!! Then I might knit myself one. Or find someone else who “needs” one.
Seriously I need to do something besides knit like a maniac and bake and decorate the house for Christmas. I did take my car in for a tuneup and drew people while I waited. A guy with the wildest hair and beard was actually reading a real book not his phone and a teenager of course reading his phone.

Hats officially done. Did I get it mailed. NOPE. Too busy knitting and decorating. Hat #2 about 6″ long already.
Margaret did u know Christmas is coming. KNit FaStEr!! Xoxoxox
Toys are great practice to draw. And challenging. Really need to paint this page. Funny I actually enjoying my grandkids toys.
If you decide to do this draw fast because they may come along and claim the toy before you get done. Eeekk.
Been baking today. Delicious coconut macaroons and these traditional British Christmas treats small individual mince meat pies. So yummy. My friend Ruth used to bake these for me before she moved to Chattanooga. Now I have to bake them. I also share them with friends like she did. If you decided to try them be sure to get Crosse and Blackwell not Borden’s. I never liked mince meat til Ruth reintroduced me to it.
I think these were all three minute sketches of Kate Marie. Been meaning to post them for a while. They really do work as a warm up. You get better as you quickly sketch the models various poses. Some of them were killer.
Done with derwent sketch pencils. Big thick things.
I think these are actually watersouble graphite but like posting the gestures I never got around to it.
In my super aquabee sketchbook.
An adult sized hat approaching the finish line. Lots of French knot ornaments and some twizzles to knit for the top.
Or is it a Grinch hat. No that would be chartreuse green right?!!
Margaret whose been out in this freezing drizzle all day and wishes she had a warm snapping fire in the fireplace to come home too. I guess I will settle for Zoe. Xoxoxo hohoho
Of my dog sitting is that I usually draw the dogs at least once or twice. Depends on how long I stay. It makes a nice record of our family dogs through out their lives.
A not so great side benefit is that I can tell when they are fading which makes me sad. I do wish our pups could live forever. Or at least as long as we do. Should be a rule. On the other hand the pounds would be worse off than they are. Zoe and I have been toying with adopting another lab friend for us. Right now falling on the no side. But who knows.
Noodler Eelskin Black Ink and Lamy Ef in my Stillman nd Birn Alpha. May or may not get paint. He’s a black and white polka dotted pit bull.
Margaret tired from baking two apple pies from scratch AND hunting all over town for yarn to knit Christmas twizzle hats.
Nope still have some more left. Guess I better count and see what I posted. This is actually one of my favorites. I drew the people staying at the Hyatt Beach House that week. Every week at the Hyatt starts with a give away from local businesses.
We have won all kinds of things. This year it was a bottle of Papa rum which is a good sipping rum. We have won free art work my personal favorite the shark hunt tour where we went chumming for shark. Fascinating what the captains know about the Waters around Key West.

Margaret poopped from too much shopping today. Xoxoxo
